According to the professional basketball trainer Rob McClanaghan, All-star NBA player Westbrook and Derrick Rose who were in the same position as point guards broke into the league together in 2008, and they explore west to shoot jumpers.

The five-time NBA all-star and a two-time NBA all-star game Most Valuable Player (MVP) Russell Westbrook controls the game in first half, against Derrick Rose of the New York Knicks at Madison Square Garden on Monday, November 28, 2016, in the home court of New York Knicks.

 Highlighting final score, Russell Westbrook OKC thunder star is now averaging a triple-double (30.9 points, 11.3 assists and 10.3 rebounds but Derrick Rose got the highest score of 30 points as Knicks.

Even though Derrick Rose scored 30 points in his best during the game, the 28-years-old Westbrook had consistently well performed while he is in the arena. It was obvious that Rose was trying to bring his self up to the best level which Westbrook owns now, and took interest in the match-up even if he wouldn't admit it.

As they traded baskets all night long, Westbrook produced his eighth triple-double this season while Rose dropped a season-high 30 points, and it was the Oklahoma City Thunder who came out on top with the score of 112-103.

 "Winning is sustainable, my task is to go out and find the best way to win this game. Right now, we won three straight and that is most important to me," Westbrook said. On the other hand, Rose is actually fit and driving the offense even with stars Carmelo Anthony and Kristaps Porzingis in tow.

The question all along has been twofold:  Can Rose persists in being healthy? And can he channel his MVP past? So far, the answer is yes. But in a league dominated by point guards, one man stands alone: Russell Westbrook. And the only question surrounding the fashion mogul is when will his next triple-double come?
